The surgery went great with minimal pain after. Everyone was great. The hospital was the cleanest I have ever been in. My husband had his surgery 3 months ago and is down 60lbs. I had mine a week ago and am down 15lbs. I wish we had done this years ago! We were referred by another former patient that had a great experience and has lost more than 100lbs. Now my neighbor is considering doing the surgery later this year. I highly recommend Dr. Mario Almanza and I would trust this hospital with any of my closest loved ones.
